Ed Sheeran fans now have an official reason to scream with joy, as if the singer is blessing them a 24-hour live performance.
That’s because he is…via their iPhones and bedroom speakers!
With over 3.1 billion global streams, his album ÷ was the most streamed album of the year on Spotify and ‘Shape Of You’ has become the most streamed track of all time on the service with 1.4 billion streams.
“Ed Sheeran absolutely dominated this year with the release of his record-breaking album, Divide,” said Stefan Blom, Spotify’s chief content officer. “There is no doubt that 2017 was The Year of Ed Sheeran, and we are thrilled that so many millions of music fans have discovered, listened to, and shared his music on Spotify.
